St. Andrew's Episcopal Church
You're going to love this...
good things are coming our way
Wise people from a distant land came to pay homage and bear gifts to God’s gift to humankind. This celebration offers us an opportunity to reflect upon what gifts we bring also on bended knee before Jesus, found now on the altar, each time we receive Christ anew in our lives. 
The Feast Day of Epiphany
is this Sunday
This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany when we celebrate the manifestation of Christ’s light into the darkness of our world. We celebrate Epiphany with the awareness that the birth of the infant Christ has moved the cosmos, bringing heaven and earth together in a profound and life-changing way.
